the diaper bag that dares to ask, "what kids?" ....

17 February 2014

{updated 2/24 - giveaway now closed}

Congrats to Kaitlin Marks!! Thanks so much for playing and entering!! And if you're feeling extra generous with your clicks .... there's a vote waiting to be cast and a super grateful Grace on the other end!! We're still in a distant second but Simon says not to give up so I'm taking his motivational speech and running with it ....


bag c/o Lily Jade
tunic - H&M
sweater - Target
boots - Hunter via eBay

Simon says I favor Theo on all social media platforms and Simon is usually right so no Theo today ... just this once. It's killing me though ... please know that, Baby Boy.

Lily Jade sent another one of their amazing designer diaper bags and once again, I'm really regretting ever stating that diaper bags weren't a necessity. Well, necessity is a little much (although the washable changing pad HAS been life changing because my life sees a lot of public restrooms thanks to one small bladder by the name of Julia Grace) but I can't tell you how nice it is to have a roomy bag with a pocket (16 - there are SIXTEEN pockets) for every single one of my trinkets that I tote around on the daily.

I like to think I confuse people when I leave the house sans offspring but still with my bag on my person (because the liner with the trillion pockets is removable and so awesome for not having to empty your purse of the diapers and the wipes and the other emergency diapers and the spare pair of unders for the toddler and the other spare pair of emergency unders for the toddler and the hidden snacks saved for the most dire of circumstances) because you can't tell me it even remotely screams, "diaper bag" and you never know ... to an untrained eye I just might be some sort of super chic business professional ... (an exec even) in a tunic with unkempt hair. You just never know.

Simon isn't one to say much about style or fashion or anyofthat. He actually trotted off to work in a pair of khakis that had shrunk to literal (yes it had to be bolded and yes I mean literally in the most literal form) capri length the other day and OH how I wish I had saved the text conversation that went down when he realized that the bottoms of his pants were above his ankles because I rarely laugh out loud but tears were streaming down my face. I hate these "you had to be there stories" too .. sorry. My point is that Simon couldn't care less about style aesthetics but on more than one occasion he's stated how much he likes my brown Caroline bag and now this red Madeline bag.

So ... do you want to be my diaper bag twin? Of course you do.


Well, that's convenient because Lily Jade is generously giving away a red Madeline Bag to one of you lucky ladies (or to a lucky gentleman ... we don't discriminate around here).

You know how the Rafflecopter works ... I hope. And if you cheat ... I'll be watching, God will know, and the earth will stop spinning immediately. Just don't.

:)

¡Buena Suerte!

Thank you!!

  46. The other day zipper on the backpack I was using as a diaper bag broke, and I threw a few things into a purse, which was great until I realized that would only work if I didn't want to bring snacks or water or extra anything. Which is all to say I've been looking for this exact thing!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Didn't read directions first, oops! Love either bag in brandy :)

  63. I would take the Madison bag simply because it has the option to be worn as a backpack and I'd pick black. I'd prefer red, but for my husband to use it too, it would have to be black. Oh, and I would definitely want the baby bag insert - in fact, I'd buy that separate to use within other bags I own now if I could!

    ReplyDelete
  64. ..errr...meant Madeline, not Madison....screaming, teething 1-year-old is trying to climb my leg :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Definitely the Madeline in Brandy! But I wouldn't say no to one in red :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. The madeline bag converts to a hands-free backpack?!?! Love. I will take one in black; please and gracias.

  69. My sister-in-law would love this bag =)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm not entering the competition but can I just applaud your correct use of 'couldn't care less'?! So many Americans use 'I could care less' which is totally wrong because well…could care less means that you don't care that much at all, which is the exact opposite of the sentiment. Agh annoying English rant over!

    ReplyDelete
  71. How are you supposed to pick? I love the Madeline in both red and brandy -- they are currently both on my "wish but can't afford right now" baby list! :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Now I am sure I am biased... but Madeline for the win?! And since Red is my color too... we'd have to be twinsies. And when you come to QC you'll be all like "who's that person with my diaper bag?" And it'll be me. Because I think I have to win this one! More than all the others.
